Sanford Scholarship

A Great Partnership

City University of Seattle is proud to partner with Sanford Inspire to provide scholarships to educators looking to obtain a Teacher Shortage Area (TSA) endorsement or alternative route to teacher certification with the goal of solving the teacher shortage in Washington state. The Sanford Scholarship will cover up to 50 percent of tuition costs for the program of study.

This is an exciting opportunity for current and future educators who want to obtain credentials that meet the new Washington state legislative regulations while furthering their careers and broadening their perspectives.
